“The player development is the main thing I like (about Michigan),” Williams said. “You can see that they develop their players. They get them in the gym and they work them hard. And their hard work pays off.”
This is one of the weekends it's great to be a football fan. An absolutely HUGE Michigan/Notre Dame game followed by a VERY winnable game for the Lions against Chicago. I can't wait. Is there really a purpose for this post? Probably not - other than letting everyone know my sheer joy of football and the amount of quality games this weekend in both college and the pros. I just needed an avenue to express myself.
Since I work in Indiana, I have my Michigan flag hanging outside my cubicle to counter all those band wagon ND fans at work. We've been trash talking all week and I love it. Couple it with the fact that they are mostly Bears fans and it's been great (I work in NW Indiana in a town called East Chicago, so they are all Bears fans instead of Colts fans).
God, I love football.
Good luck to everyone's fantasy football teams this week!
Does Kelly have an axe to grind with UofM for getting the snub when he wanted to interview for Lloyd's job? How much does a coach who feels slighted matter in the outcome of the game. The guy can obviously coach him some football, but was unwelcome by Mr. Carr & Mr. Martin IIRC. EVentually I think this guy will be exacting some revenge, probably not starting tomorrow. I hope RR has his number like he does Edsall's.
I am 6 7' and everytime Im at the big house I hit the guy in front of me with my knee ( I always apologize). What rows have the most leg room? Also what row is it when you enter into the stadium?
Assuming that the weather at game time is either rainy or that earlier rain makes the field somewhat damp, does this benefit Michigan or ND? Does the rain have more of an impact by slowing down our running, or more of an impact by making it harder for ND to air it out?
Saturday: Showers and thunderstorms likely before 2pm, then a chance of showers. Cloudy, with a high near 69. South wind around 10 mph. Chance of precipitation is 60%. New rainfall amounts between a quarter and half of an inch possible.
It may be dry by game time.
During halftime at the UConn game, my friend had an interesting question, and I am not sure how to answer it. He asked how you stop a really athletic QB who runs a lot, like Denard.
Schematically, I feel like the best way would be to have someone spy the QB. You might be best off with a nickel package, with the extra DB spying the QB. But then you kinda expose yourself to the run, but without the nickelback you expose yourself to the QB run.
Anyone have any better ideas?
